Obituary

 

Dallas Leslie Freeman, 87, of Deep Run NC went to his heavenly home while surrounded by his family on May 16, 2022 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Dallas was a simple man who worked hard all his life. He never placed value on material things and often joked about his old cars and how he was a penny pincher and tight wad. He believed in preparing for hard times and on a weekly basis had conversations with his kids regarding finances and being smart with their money. In the midst of making sure his family had all their needs, Dallas worked as a full-time engineer, a part time farmer, and had a side job surveying land. Dallas was a lifetime member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints along side his wife of 64 years, Lucille. While in a crowd Dallas was a man of few words. He was quite the comedian in smaller crowds and provided many memories of laughter over the later years of his life.  He had a strong desire for service to others and was a humble, generous man. He was often known as the “man of the church who looked after all the widows of the ward”. He could be found dropping off fresh vegetables from his garden, mowing their grass, or fixing something broken. He often would be seen providing them with rides to town for a meal out with him and Lucille. Dallas also had a large testimony of tithing to the Lord and even in the later years since being unable to attend Church he provided a way for his tithing to be paid. He was a man who valued his family, his relationship with the Lord and preparing for the day he would return to his Savior.

Dallas had a special friend in his life known as “Bull”, his dog. Bull brought out a side of Dallas that his family had never seen, his love for animals. Bull went to his heavenly resting place on February 14, 2022 after serving as a faithful companion to Dallas. Dallas could be seen daily riding Bull around the community in his car and in the later years this tradition being carried out by Dallas’s children.
